The Rehearsal (Book)
Pigeon Theatre’s Trilogy of Performance Works on Playing Dead
Pigeon Theatre – comprised of Anna Fenemore, Gillian Knox and Amanda Griffkin – specializes in experimental works that incorporate non-traditional spaces, unconventional social arrangements and shared intimacies between performer and audience. A trilogy of site-specific performance texts, The Rehearsal raises questions about the interplay in contemporary theatre between the process of rehearsal and the theatrical metaphors that shape our everyday dealings with trauma, including death. Accompanied by critical essays, these studio-based works – developed using verbatim strategies – explore the double meaning of 'playing dead'.
